"the washington post's" kathleen parker. nbc's kelly o'donnell and the "national journal," chris frates. first up, hillary clinton gave as good as she got when peppered by challenging questions on benghazi this week. the reviews were she showed the graph tass and confidence, confidence a potential presidential candidate could. not hard to see the outlines. democrats outdid each other in ladding secretary clinton's remarkable four years but republicans seemed eager to rough up the woman some clearly want to keep out of the white house. and this was the exchange. that drew the most attention. between senator clinton, secretary clinton now and senator ron johnson of wisconsin. >> we were misled that there was supposedly protests and something sprang out of that and assaults sprang out of that. >> we had four dead americans because of a protest or was it because of guys out for a walk one night and decided they would kill some americans? what difference at this point does it make? chris: remarkably calm

correspondent, chuck todd. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. this was no ordinary policy rollout. we have seen the president do this on a number of issues. this one was filled with an emotional plea, if you will. in fact, the president spent more time trying to drum up support for a campaign using emotion than he did talking about his actual plans themselves. an emotional president obama unveiled his plan in front of an audience that included parents of newtown victims. >> she dreamed of becoming a painter. chris, her father, gave me one of her paintings. and i hung it in my private study. and every time i look at that painting, i think about how when it comes to protecting the most vulnerable among us, we must act now. for grace. >> the president outlined four major points. each one evoked memories of past mass shootings. >> we will make sure mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. >> reporter: this action makes it easier to share mental health records with authorities, a move that could have identified seung-hui cho as a threat

, chuck todd. and chuck, some people look at the presidency as a checkbook, and certainly this will amount to one of the first checks the president writes, drawing down that political balance. >> reporter: well, that's right. and tomorrow he's going to nevada to create public pressure, the white house says. it was supposed to be the place where he was going to launch this push for immigration, but the white house is very supportive of what this bipartisan group of senators are not ready to fully endorse the deal, but they endorse it in principle. and that's exactly right. and it goes to what kelly said at the beginning, brian. both parties -- big deals happen in washington when the political self interests align. and john mccain has been very straightforward about the self interests of the republican party. they have got to fix their problems with hispanics, and that's why they're at the table. >> all right, chuck todd, at the white house tonight. chuck, thanks. >>> it has been exactly three months since hurricane sandy tore up the east coast, and finally tonight, after a four-week delay,

from the white house tonight. our chief white house correspondent chuck todd is there this evening. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. well, as you know, a lot of these things, as the white house prepares to roll out these recommendations formally tomorrow at 12:00 noon, they are having a big event here. the president's even going to be surrounded by school children. here's what we understand are going to be among his biggest proposals, universal background checks. he's going to call for new legislation to do that. a ban on gun magazines that carry ammunition of more than ten rounds of ammunition. he's going to call for a renewal of the assault weapons ban. and then he's going to ask for more aggressive prosecution of existing laws. let me separate this out a little bit. the first three items are things he's going to ask congress to do. there are actually already bills that have been introduced in the united states senate that deal with those three items. the fourth item has to do with people who essentially lie on background checks, they fail background checks.

and chief white house correspondent, chuck todd, has our brand new polling numbers about how americans are feeling about gun laws. >> reporter: a day after the president unveiled his recommendations to curb gun violence -- >> this is our first task as a society. keeping our children safe. >> reporter: the new nbc news "wall street journal" poll shows 56% of americans do want stricter gun laws. 7% say they're too strict now. and 35% want no changes. 20 years ago, the last time real changes were debated, a full two-thirds of americans wanted stricter gun laws. this time, the public appears to be looking at the complex reasons behind the spade of mass shootings. a large majority said they believed lack of parental involvement with their children, inadequate mental health care and violent video games all contributed more to the gruesome shootings of the past two years than access to guns. and while the president talked a lot about mental health issues yesterday -- >> we will make sure mental health professionals know their options for reporting threats of violence. >> reporter: he never on

correspondent chuck todd also on hand tonight. he joins me now. chuck, there are a lot of people, i'm sure, out there rolling their eyes, wondering how did we get to this point on new year's eve? how did they let it go this far? >> reporter: well, the biggest problem is our political system does not reward compromise. the way these deals have happened in the past, with previous presidents and previous speakers and previous leaders is a compromise is rewarded by the public. and right now, whether it's president obama, whether it was speaker boehner, the two of them couldn't find a way to get to a deal because they didn't want to look like they were ever caving. and when you get to a point where it looks like you're caving on something, then there is negative political effects. now, that's why they've brought in vice president biden, mitch mcconnell, the senate republican leader, to try to close this thing. and they may close a deal, but there's no guarantee that even any deal they come to an agreement with tonight will actually make it tomorrow. >> and chuck, this congress has, you were telling

just witnessed. our political director and chief white house correspondent, chuck todd, is with us. and david gregory, moderator of "meet the press" and might add former chief white house correspondent. david, we'll start with you. this speech was not short on specifics. in fact, it was unusual for the number of specifics, and a speech of its kind. what stuck out at you? >> a shorter speech, but a lot of substance there. here you have a president talking about the need for economic restoration, but he's got a theory of the case. he's talking about lifting up the middle class. a robust defense of a progressive vision of what government ought to do, defending medicare and social security. he'll make modifications, but in this era of budget cutting, he doesn't want to go too far, that's the case he made. and i wrote it down. he wants to tackle gun violence, advance gay rights, marriage equality, tackle climate change and immigration. and this was just the inaugural address. we understand there's more to come, of course, in the state of the union. all of this against a difficult backdr

todd. chuck, considering that the house left for the night, what was the senate's incentive for staying and hammering out this deal? >> well, they want a deal. and mitch mcconnell is the one who really wanted a deal because mitch mcconnell made the political calculation that the best leverage that the democrats and the white house had over them in this ongoing budget battle -- and let's remember, that's what we are in the middle of. and we haven't gotten rid of that. this ongoing battle of shaping the federal budget, who pays for deficit reduction, that the tax issue wasn't solved, that that would be a bigger sledgehammer against the republicans. so mcconnell was incentivized to do a deal, and so were all the senate republicans. that's why you saw such an effort in the last two day, particularly on mitch mcconnell to try and hammer out some sort of deal. the president wants a deal. he doesn't want to go over the cliff. now there are a bunch of other democrats that do. but the president didn't want to do it because he wants to be able to take this. he thinks that having a straight-up fig

we want to begin tonight with our chief white house correspondent chuck todd. chuck, good evening. >> reporter: good evening, brian. refusing to shy away from what potentially could be a new washington fight, the president tapped two very close allies who have a history of ruffling political feathers into two key national security posts. president obama emphasized the two men's personal connections to the organizations he has tapped them to run. chuck hagel would be the first vietnam veteran to head the pentagon. >> to this day, chuck bears the scars and shrapnel in the battles he fought in our name. >> reporter: and john brennan, who spent 25 years at the cia, would now run the agency. >> john has lost colleagues and friends. >> reporter: as demonstrators protested brennen's connection to controversial interrogation techniques like waterboarding that date back to the bush years -- the president moved to head off that criticism. >> he understands, we are a nation of laws. he insists on high and rigorous standards. >> reporter: but it's hagel's nomination that's receiving a decided

, january 2nd, 2013, and this is the daily rundown. i'm chris cillizza in for chuck todd today. one nightmare is over, but could last night's deal be a warm-up for more brinksmanship in 2013. just after 11:00 p.m., the house did approve a bipartisan senate bill to avert sweeping income taxes on most americans and delay some spending cuts. the measure passed 267 to 167 with just 85 republicans joining 172 democrats to vote in favor of it. key parts of the deal include, income tax rates going up for the first time in two decades. rates will rise from 35% to 39.6% on incomes over $400,000 for individuals and $450,000 for couples. the bill also delays automatic cuts to the pentagon and domestic programs for two months. and 2 million unemployed americans will continue to receive jobless benefits for at least another year. the congressional budget office estimates the bill will add nearly $4 trillion to the deficit over the next ten years, largely to pay for keeping the bush tax rates in place for most americans. house republicans complained loudly before that vote last night, that there

," i'm chuck todd. boy, three years? a different part, huh? let's get to my first reads of the morning. vice president biden will present his recommendations on gun violence to the president tuesday. white house officials say an assault weapons ban will still be an element of whatever final package is proposed, despite reporting to the contrary this morning. and while in a 15-minute statement for cameras yesterday, biden emphasized an emerging consensus around a set of what he called gun safety proposals. he did not mention the assault weapons ban idea once. >> there is a surprising -- so far, a surprising recurrence of suggests that we have universal background checks. i've never quite heard as much talk about the need to do something about high-capacity magazines. the whole question of the ability of any federal agency doing any research on the issue of gun violence. >> but even those points are likely to face opposition from the nra. research money for studying the impact of guns is a fraction of what it was in the mid '90s and public health scientists have complained, because the g

and political director chuck todd joins us now. chuck, there are some voices out there saying, good for the house republicans, they're standing on their principles. but a lot of voices are also saying, how much longer is this going to take? >> reporter: it may be a new year but old habits are dying hard with this congress. we're in the last throes of the typical theatrics that have been the norm in washington over the last couple of years. there's going to be a few more shenanigans before the night is over. but they're probably going to end up voting on this bill. if they don't approve it, do realize, if they don't approve it, the senate is not going to take up any bill. and that means this entire fiscal cliff miss will not be solved at all. they'll have to start all over with the new congress which gets sworn in in two days. and it could take weeks and everybody's taxes go up. it doesn't -- not just $250,000. everybody's taxes go up. so it could be a real mess. but i think we're in the last throes of sort of the washington shenanigans. >> and you're standing on the white house lawn
